my spring/summer skin care routine

Good evening everyone,

today I would like to follow-up on my introduction to skin care and fall/winter skin care routine by telling you all about my spring/summer skin care routine. Spring and summer is long gone and winter is right around the corner, so I wanted to take the chance and let you know about the differences in my routine for spring/summer, compared to the fall/winter routine that I have already switched to again.

Like I’ve said before, I have tried a bunch different products over the past years and now have found the right products that work for my sensitive skin.

my fall/winter skin care routine

Good evening everyone,

today I would like to follow-up on my introduction to skin care by telling you all about my fall/winter skin care routine. If you haven’t read the post, I advise you to do so, to find out about my skin condition and history.

I have tried a bunch of skin care products over the past years (drugstore and others), but most of them caused problems like break outs and irritation, which is why I was pretty discouraged to even find my personal skin care routine for years. I told you that my turning point was talking to Daniel from Beni Durrer, who I trust and who is very dear to me now. He advised me to take better care of my skin and therefore is responsible for me reading up on things and finding my personal skin care routine.

[sponsored] Rossmann – Schön für mich box May 2015

Hello everyone,

about three weeks ago I received a lovely package from Rossmann. It contained the Schön für mich – Box for the month of May.

I was very happy to receive one of these, because I was never lucky enough to actually win one of the Rossmann or DM Boxes. So thank you to Rossmann for sending it through.

I really love the design and color scheme. So pretty and it’s giving a nice feeling of spring. I think I might put a sticker over the Schön für mich label and use it as a gift box for my friend in Japan.

Anyway, let’s dive right into it.

The box contained several products some of the Rossmann brand but some higher priced products as well.

Rossmann products:

  • Isana – eye make-up remover & face cleaning gel
  • Isana – soft face peeling
  • Isana – face toner
  • Isana – make-up removal wipes

So far I was able to try the removal wipes only. However I will try the other ones as well. The removal wipes are okay. The wipes have a nice scent, but not too much. They do not irritate my eyes and remove waterproof make-up as well.

I must admit though, that I prefer the removal wipes from Florena. They are super gentle on my skin.

Other products:

  • bebe youngcare – pomegranate smoothie shower gel
  • Palmolive – aroma sensations – feel glamorous shower gel and peeling
  • Nivea – care body and face creme
  • Nivea MEN – body, face and hand creme
  • Essence – #mymessage eau de toilette (scent: luck)
  • Max Factor – Pastel Compact Blush – 15 seductive pink

Since I started trying the shower gel and peeling from Palmolive I didn’t get the chance to try the one from bebe young care yet. I will keep you up if I find this to be super good and  a recommendation. If not it might just be as okay as most of the shower gels on the market^^

The Palmolive shower gel and peeling is pretty nice. I like the scent, even though I am usually not a fan of fruity products. The peeling effect is gentle, so it’s perfect for everyday use between the regular peeling I use from Rituals every other week.

It also comes in different scent and costs around 1,50 – 2 euro. If you like one product for a soft peeling and cleaning, maybe give it a try.

The Nivea MEN creme might go straight to my younger brother, since my boyfriend only uses specialized skin products.

The regular creme I will definitely try. I am using the Nivea soft creme on my face for years and I never had any problems, so this might also be a nice product for me.

This is the only product I didn’t feel was needed in this box. There was so much commercial on these different scents that I am actually a little annoyed seeing them haha

My sister might be happier to receive it from me. If not I will do a giveaway.

This was the product I was most excited about. Max Factor products are usually pretty good and the color seemed a good match for my skin tone. I swatched it and must say I am pretty happy with it. I will definitely use it.

All together the box was a clear hit instead of a miss.

How do you like the products? Would you have enjoyed this particular box? Let me know in the comments.
